Chiffon

Ya wanna do a "make and take"?
That's what BFF Virginia said to me yesterday.
Her niece, Kami Dorr of Oklahoma City, showed her
how to do these last week!
We love them!
I had done this with tulle....
It's a different look and OH SO flammable!
You need to gather a tealight candle,
a small bowl of water in case you have a flame
and
a piece of aloe vera for when you burn yourself....
I only burned myself doing the tulle...
which I'm not showing here.
JUST go buy some chiffon...that's what these are.
Cut circles out of the chiffon.... do it freehand, do not draw them.
JUST do as I say.... keep it simple....
You can cut them different sizes.
The chiffon slightly heated is very forgiving
of shapes you've cut...
Hold it above the flame and quickly move it
to singe the edge. You can also lightly
heat the bottom of the petal to make it
curl more.
You can make french knots in the middle or sew seed beads! Wouldn't these be great on a shoe!!!! Or in your hair or on your blouse!!!! Or on a sachet or a belt! Let me know what you do!

I've been eyeing these on various sites and want to make some NOW. I think yours are the prettiest I've seen. Alas, my chiffon is packed in boxes somewhere and I think my husband would have a fit if I unpacked anything before we move.

Will you be using them on your daughter's shoes?

Linda,
Those are beautiful! I have all the chiffon ready to go but I have been afraid I would burn the house down doing them. Thanks for showing us step by step.

I am trying to find a good, easy flower to do for a retreat my friend, Donna and I are leading. I don't think this is it. I need to try that long one that you "wrap" as you go. I imagine you do that one, too.

Any ideas?

Nathalie Thompson said...

I think you need to SERIOUSLY do blog giveaway with one or two. :)
